People can do what they like of course, and I recall back when GStreamer
used to compile against GTK+ 1.2 or the GObject in 2.0. But from a bug
management perspective, having to always ask what GTK+ a user has
compiled against is complicated, and they might not always know if the
dependency tree is deep -- and in just such a case, a maintainer will
sometimes find that the user inadvertantly linked against 2.x /and/ 3.x
(due to transitive dependencies).

Which will seriously break unless people are willing to add versioned
symbols to GTK+.

It would also break with versioned symbols as some struct layouts have changed between gtk2 and gtk3
